Gerry Anderson comes to Forbidden Planet…FAB!


Gerry Anderson, one of the Godfathers of Geekdom, is going to be signing in the Forbidden Planet Megastore, Shaftesbury Avenue. The signing will be taking place on Saturday 18th April 1 – 2pm.

Gerry is one of my heroes  because he gave me some of the most awesome TV I used to watch as a kid. Captain Scarlett, Thunderbirds, Stingray, UFO and Space 1999 and more. It was these shows that helped to cement my love for these kind of genres from an early age.

If any of you fans are in the area I think it’s well worth stopping by to say hello.

I’ve stuck the press release below with all the info

Gerry Anderson’s astonishing and ground-breaking career has spanned over 50 years and has created many iconic series including the world-famous Thunderbirds, Stingray, UFO, Space 1999 and Captain Scarlet – all of which have since entered the hallowed halls of SF fandom nostalgia.

Launched in 1965, TV Century 21 (later known as TV 21) ties into these astounding science-fiction puppet series created by Gerry Anderson’s Century 21 Productions. In these great new collections of reprints, authorised and supervised by Gerry Anderson, Chris Bentley has assembled some of the most thrilling stories from TV21’s classic years including Thunderbirds, Lady Penelope, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90.
